one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans

to a vote. it's another thing to say to america basically, i'm not going to let this come to a vote. i have my own reasons here for this so i'm just not going to let it come to the floor. if i were harry reid, i'm not, but if i were harry reid, i would call his bluff. i would call republicans' bluff. let's show america what these people are all about. let them stand there day after day in the well of the senate reading the phone book doing whatever it would be, anything but it have a vote here. show that on national television every night and let's see how the american people feel about it. >> i agree, ned lamont, i always held it against you. you went up to maine about three weeks and took a vacation. you're such a yankee. you had to go to maine for a couple of weeks. look, let's get to this question would you be -- >> chris, i'm so sorry about the philadelphia phillies. >> i knew you had to do that. ron raised a good point. why don't we do it like "mr. smith goes to washington." why don't we bring in the beds and go to the mattresses literally okay, republicans and joe lieberman, if you w
's unemployment rate will stay elevated for years. >> oh, my goodness, this is just bad news for america. >> it does, especially after yesterday's news about the real unemployment rate. in october, the figure hit 10th.2%, a 26-year high. >> we talked about how it's going to affect the elections in 2010 around here because we talk about politics, but this recession may affect the 2012 election and the 2014 election. when we talk about, mort, that we've reset the economy, that we're not going to be driven by just crazed consumerism, that means something. we either start building things here in this country again, or this economy doesn't turn around, and people don't get back to work. and maybe, just maybe one day washington politicians will start focusing on that. >> you know what it brings forward too is a really dysfunctional political system to address these issues. they put together a stimulus program, and so much of it goes to pet projects of the individual congressmen and senators and so much of it gets dislieutenanted. it doesn't really focus in on the problem. here we are a year la
greening of america is finding new ways to make america a leader in the 21st century. neil: how do you do that, congressman, with someone who is, say, a biomedical expert at pfizer, or a top engineer at g.e., and he lost his job? what are they going to do for these guys? >> those are highly skilled. $10 billion. neil: i am telling you, that is the problem here. by and large, what is going on in corporate america is the issue here, and a lot of these folks for him to think you are finding jobs in the best interests, andiit ain't happening, so maybe than continuing to dig in that hole, we put that shovel down. >> i do not think the -- the administration has a problem with it, as well, and we have had an extension ends in november begin? we need to pass that safety reauthorization, and that is something -- and we have had an extension ends in november. we need to pass the safety and reauthorization. neil: i am sorry i am not more clear. that is my fault. i am wondering, if i am a ceo, i am wondering if the problem is more basic, sir, and by that, i mean there are a lot of bosses that realize
or not it creates mass relief for the struggling homeowners of america, that is entirely different story. host: i think that even argue that it has not. 57% of all mortgages modified through fannie mae have defaulted again within 12 months. if you were in trouble before, the majority of people getting help are still in trouble. >> this program was supposed to help 3 million people. only 650,000 homeowners are involved in the initial stages. as of september 1 only 1711 homeowners have had their monthly payments permanently reduce. that at a cost of $27 billion. that is what has been spent on this program. three to 4 million were hoped to be held. 650,000 in the initial stages of the program. only 100 -- only 1711 received reductions. bill: is this getting anywhere? >> the problem is that it is an intensely bureaucratic confusion of paper work on both sides, plus an avalanche of foreclosures in the marketplace and underlying everything is unemployment. people are not buying homes in this environment. bill: the unemployment rate might be 10% but it is higher when you consider the people underemploye
for debate. how many people in america know that the reason we are here is because the republicans don't even want to bring the bill to the floor for debate and amendment. while, that's their right under the rules of the senate is their right. they can filibuster, deily, obstruct. they can say no. but just as surely as that is their right it is our responsibility as democrats to move this bill forward. i would remind my colleagues on the other side of the ogle that last year voters overwhelmingly voted for barack obama to lead changes, to make changes, and one of the changes he campaigned so hard for most changes in the health care system. and just as surely voters elected democrats to majorities, big majorities in the house and senate to do the same thing so it's our responsibility to lead. and that's what we are doing now by bringing this bill to the floor. we are taking another giant step toward fulfilling the mandate, the mandate the people of this country gave to president obama and the democratic party last november to undertake a comprehensive reform of america's health care system. an
dedicated funding to cover all of new york city's added security costs? >> i think that is fair. america was attack on september the 11th. that was of national consequence. although the trial will be hosted in new york, it seems to me that new york should not bear the burden alone. this is a national -- >> so you will recommend, and i presume, fight for these funds from omb which we know sometimes has other things on its mind. >> with your help -- >> you have my full and undivided help. i just don't want mayor bloomberg, the commissioner. they didn't make the decision, but they stepped up to the plate and willingly agreed. i don't think either they or new york city, new york state should be left hanging out there paying any of the costs of this, and i take it you fully agree with that. >> i don't disagree with that at all. >> okay. second question, and just one other thing on this. there may be other costs that we can't envision, and i take it we're wanot going to find someby saying this wasn't in an original application or on an original request. i take it there will be flexibility and
and govern america from the left is failing quickly and decisively. bill crystal says our task is to minimize the damage and use the next three years to lay the ground work intelligently for a new era that can conserve prosperity and revitalize pennsylvania from the republican line. sit worth the price? >> no. i come to the point where i don't even feel that way as a republican. i think look what happened here with hasan and the response of our media and that attack at fort hood and look at that and also the way that we are looking at things internally, you know we have the chief of the staff in t$e army saying after somebody slaughtered all t$ese people diversity is your greatest string and then you go to this diverse place. tribal and ethnic diversity in afghanistan and iraq and you see that, that's really not a string strength in reality. diversity of this all over the world is endless strife and bloodshed and we're not - our democracy was born out of anglo-saxon civilization. and with democracy it's really a simple thing really. so i don't know why we have to point a bayon et to make the
